...and the anger mark on the head.

I have a friend who used to get nosebleeds all the time. It's kinda funny when he told me stories about how he (perhaps coincidentally) gets nosebleed at those moments, like seeing a girl wearing loose clothing. He went to the doctor to get his nose fixed, so that doesn't happen anymore, though.

Anemia isn't low blood sugar, it's low red blood cell count, generally caused by malnutrition. Because you don't have enough blood cells to carry all the oxygen you need, you get tired easily or faint if you don't have enough for your brain.

Low blood sugar is hypoglycemia, which has similar symptoms for what I assume are different reasons.

Ah that's right I always confuse hypoglycemia and anemia, dang similar symptoms always tricking me and what not.

So, if there's a company that operates for 24 hour non-stop (or maybe less), usually the people are working in a "shift", in a turn. As example, A works in the morning, and B in the evening. Variable shift means that A doesn't always works in the morning, he can sometime asked (or request) to work in the evening.

At least that's how it's work in my country....

It's not always an option (at least it's not over here). If you accept the job, then you must be ready and willing to work during anytime of the day........ even late night shifts. >_<

It always means you may change which shift you work any given week (day, evening, night). Most places I've worked with such things usually had a rotating schedule - each week you'd roll forward 8 hours.
week 1 - 8am report
week 2 - 4pm report
week 3 - midnight report
rinse - repeat.

Sliding to earlier shifts is usually quite hard on the bio-rhythms so most places have learned to bump shifts forward. Beware any workplace that jumps you randomly or bumps shifts backward -- they usually have a much higher accident rate (d'uh).

So i was wondering if it is a body reaction (chemical release) to make the person forget about the sad part to relieve the stress or something. Or is it "luckily it is not happening to me" thing?
Maybe you have a really high amount of serotonin. LOL. Or maybe it's just the satisfaction of finishing an anime that welled up tears in your eyes, and was really good, that your brain triggered these happy emotions later on.

Anyone knows what is the best way to ask an acquaintance his/her name (who you knew for a long time but forgot his/her name) without hurting their feeling?

What i always do is asking their number, and get them to spell out their name... or just admit that i am really bad at remember people name..... But these two does not work in every occasion (especially when their name is happened to be ridiculously easy to spell: Tom, Ben, Smith for example....)

This has been a lifelong problem for me -- no matter how well I know the person or how long.

Never found any clean way to do it other than to knock myself on the head and lament my brain simply fails to store names properly as I apologize. Its wierd - I can tell you what they look like, visualize their face, relate experiences of them in great detail, even tell you their bio... but the name vanishes in the fog.

It does not serve me well in any context that depends heavily on social diplomacy (like sales work).

Yeah I've also been really bad at that, I don't know the names of half the people I go to school with, luckily I've found facebook helps a lot with this, looking at mutual friend's photos wall etc.

I have a silly question.

What is the deal with the leek/onion that Miku Hatsune carries? Is there a back story to this? Does this originate from her creators or is it a fan thing?

Well, there are options, but, risks are involved . One is just go through a conversation without mentioning the other persons name, nod your head, and go about your business. Still, theres a risk involved there - its much worse to say mid conversation " Ah.. yeah, I'm really sorry but I don't seem to remember.." than just saying it straight out in the start ( the safest option ). How about this, instead of asking them for their name and number why don't you just give them your phone and tell them to enter the details themselves?

Actually I had to do this today. It is really simple. Ask the person how to spell their name.


edit: oops you already thought of that.

I'm pretty sure its fan-based. Someone'll need to check for me... The first thing that comes into mind with the word "leek" is that "Leekspin" animation of Orihime from Bleach.
